Long Time No Bark!!

So, anyway, a small update as to what I told you in the beginning of the month:

Daddy's momma is trying to talk the owner of this place into letting her rent to own. We've all got our paws crossed and our breath is being held. We're waiting for her and the landlord to get back to us; and, whatever they say, determines whether or not we move. It determines our future, you could say. So, guys, keep your paws crossed. Maybe this will be Daddy's first victory in the battle against BSL.

Anyway, Halloween is sneaking up! Which could only mean one thing: Costumes, pumpkins, kids and... you guessed it!... doggie treats. So, if you're reading this, here is a Halloween recipe that your dogs may enjoy. Don't be afraid to try it out. It came from The Good Food Cookbook for Dogs by Donna Twichell Roberts.

Creepy Cat Cake

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup honey
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

1 Place Flour, oatmeal, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl and mix to combine. Make a well in the center.
2 In a seperate bowl, stir together pumpkin, honey, egg and water.
3 Pour pumpkin mixture into flour mixture and stir for 4 to 5 strokes. Add walnuts and stir just to combine all ingredients.
4 Spray inside of large cat mold and parchment paper with cooking oil. Place cat mold on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Spoon pumpkin mixture into the mold to within 1/4 inch of the top. Remaining batter can be spooned into greased muffin cups and baked alongside the cat. Bake in preheated 400F oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool in mold for 5 minutes. Remove from mold and continue cooling on rack. Makes 1 cat cake and about 3 or 4 muffins.

Have a pawfect Howl O Ween!!!
